Channel 4 as part of its news service, have announced that the jet stream has finally moved from its unusual location south of ireland and will be over scotland for the weekend.

For those that don't know it is because of being on the cold north side of the jetstream we have been having such a rough Spring.

The East coast may well hit 21 degrees this weekend unfortunately in the west it will be cloudy and rainy but still much warmer. So it looks like we should be able to start some planting out even if is in the wet for some of us.

That IS good news.  Let's hope it stays put and we finally have a decent summer.

09/04/2013 at 19:52

Sounds very good to me, please let it stay in the right place so we can have some sun this summer

09/04/2013 at 20:31

Is that a promise?

Blackest can you be our weatherman from now on?
Brilliant if it happens

Wow, 21 degrees; I'm ironing my shorts

One of my usual weather sites agrees:

If you want to see the jet stream forecast, go here and click the 'animate' button.  At about 90 hours it shoots up over Scotland.

Groovy maps, think I'm in for some rain and some sun on the weekend. Great the garden needs a drink and some sun

I think Hollie hocks got that just right

Hoping for a bit of rain here, too, hollie hock (hopefully at night, of course!)  Had to water all of my outdoor pots at the weekend - pretty unusual at this time of the year.  My water authority (ST) are telling customers to be careful with their water use.. and that after the 6 months of deluge that passed for last "summer"!

same here had gales here in devon some of my plants have dried out and look dead,oh dear.

It's ranged been between 6.5C and 10C over the past 4-5 days so not too bad where we are in the East Midlands. When that icy wind drops you can really feel the warmth of the Sun! You just know that as soon as the temperature goes up everything's going to take off with a vengeance. Can't wait!!!!

I've even brought out the table and chairs.... just in case!! Now there's optimism!

09/04/2013 at 23:36

...I've just read it'll be 90 degrees next week...

Bob can you make sure you put that request in for 'rain only at night' then-and can you ask that Scotland gets an 'off' switch for the rain too?

Shadow's got the furniture outside now and we don't want it raining on his parade!

Maybe we can all start putting off our heating -in the greenhouses as well as homes!

Forecast night temps in double figures at the weekend, maybe, just maybe, things about to get going, touch wood.
